I received my X-Carve earlier in the week and the assembly process has been going great! I have bumped into one small issue, however:
I have the X-Carve (1000 x 1000) with the ACME rod option, version 1 (ordered 4/13, it has the M6 nut on top of the pulley), and I have been having problems threading the Delrin nut onto the ACME rod. I’ve even tried chucking the rod in a power drill and pushing it down into the nut as I run the drill at very slow speed, but it seems as though the threaded hole is entirely too small. I realize this has to be a tight fit, but it doesn’t seem as though the threaded hole in the nut matches the ACME threaded rod.
Is it possible I’ve received the wrong Delrin nut for the ACME rod? Note the hole in the nut is being enlarged as I’ve attempted to run the rod through the nut with the power drill.
Has anyone else run into this problem? Thanks …
